Kadai-tossed deliciously spiced fillings nestled inside a crunchy deep-fried outer crust simply makes tea worth sipping. Samosa may not be Indian but the desi snack time is incomplete without it. The dish sees a variety of innovations and experiments across the Capital and we love each one of them! Because, samosa. Here are our top 10 favorite samosa junctions in Delhi.
Chittaranjan Park Market
Where: Chittaranjan Park, Delhi-19
It’s not a samosa, it’s a singhada. Yes, that’s the name this dish goes by in major parts of Eastern India. This rendition has some extra members inside the u=outer layer like chickpeas and peanuts. The singhada is clearly plenty different from the regular samosa with one similarity. It’s delicious.
Munni Lal Halwai
Where: Gole Market, Delhi-03
If the normal samosa is large, the one at Munni Lal is Extra Large with some extra space (probably to give the masala inside some breathing space). The snack is served with a generous topping of chhole and chutney, which is best washed down with some tea.

The Maha Samosa
